Plus Charlie McKeon

Live Music
Wednesday 10th Jul 19:30 - 22:30

With roots in Ireland and Australia, New York City-based rustic folk singer and songwriter Vincent Cross has been described as "impeccably gifted" by Big City Rhythm and Blues, and “…powerful and unique..." by Red Line Roots. "I didn't set out to write political songs. It's in the air. As artists, we pick up on that."

Cross has a talent for inspired live performances. Playing banjo, or guitar, with a few spare riffs of harmonica, he sings original songs that borrow melodies and lyrics from the American folk tradition, while telling observant stories about modern times. Cross has called his music tradiginal, a portmanteau that brings together traditional and original under one term.

“Like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie before him, Cross re-purposes the structures and themes of traditional songs to create highly resonant new ones.” (fRoots Magazine UK)

“Brings a modern sensibility to songs that lie deep in our musical genes” (Country Standard Time US)

“Captures the spirit and methodology of the great tradition of troubadours..." (The Revolution Starts Now US)

“Echoes the great folk performers of the past while retaining his own voice and approach to songwriting ” (Gentlefolk2 UK)
